Raiders tab rookie Derek Carr as starting QB (Yahoo Sports) - Oakland rookie Derek Carr will start the season opener against the New York Jets. Coach Dennis Allen announced Monday that Carr got the nod ahead of Matt Schaub, who struggled in the preseason and has been hampered by a sore elbow. Carr will be the first rookie to start the season opener at quarterback in Raiders history. Carr was a second-round pick out of Fresno State in May. He will become the 18th starting quarterback for the Raiders since the start of the 2003 season. Dizzy in heat, Bouchard out of upset-heavy US Open (Yahoo Sports) - Bothered by the heat and stifling humidity, Eugenie Bouchard felt dizzy and her vision was blurry. Bouchard tried to carry on, but it was hardly an ideal time to try to win a tennis match. The No. 7-seeded Bouchard became the latest top woman to bow out at this surprise-filled U.S. Open, beaten 7-6 (2), 6-4 Monday by 17th-seeded Ekaterina Makarova of Russia in the fourth round.

Dunn provided instant pop for the struggling Athletics, hitting a towering, two-run homer in his debut at-bat for Oakland to highlight a 6-1 win over the Seattle Mariners on Monday in a matchup of playoff contenders. ''We're going to take full advantage.'' Acquired a day earlier in a trade with the Chicago White Sox, the 6-foot-6, 285-pound Dunn immediately became an imposing presence in the middle of Oakland's order. His drive was a welcome sight for a team that just got swept in a four-game series by the AL West-leading Los Angeles Angels and was shut out for 29 straight innings. Dunn homers in 1st at-bat for A's, tops White Sox (Yahoo Sports) - Adam Dunn provided instant pop for the struggling Athletics, hitting a towering, two-run homer in his first at-bat for Oakland to highlight a 6-1 win over the Seattle Mariners on Monday in a matchup of playoff contenders. Acquired a day earlier in a trade with the Chicago White Sox, Dunn became the 12th player in Oakland history to homer in his first at-bat with the team.

Quintana in Vuelta command after Contador causes havoc (Reuters) [Yahoo! Sports: August 31, 2014, 6:20 pm]
Colombian Nairo Quintana snatched the overall leader's red jersey at the Tour of Spain on Sunday after Alberto Contador's late attack caused havoc in a group of favorites on the ninth stage. Spain's Contador jumped away from a group of top guns and built a small gap over his rivals some two kilometers from the finish of the 185-km ride from Carboneras de Guadazaon. Winner Anacona of Colombia took the day's laurels after dropping his breakaway companions in the last climb, an 8-km ascent at an average gradient of 6.6 percent. Giro d'Italia winner Quintana and Spain's Joaquim Rodriguez were the only riders who managed to catch Contador after the double Tour de France champion's brutal acceleration left his rivals stuck on the tar on an unusually wet day on the Vuelta.
